    Adam Gilchrist's 6s

    Great article on Cricinfo, listing all the 6s Gilchrist has ever hit in Tests, good reading. Your thoughts?

    Very average selection of bowlers he's hit them off.

    Yeah, only Pollock, Hoggard and Murali stand out, however Pollock was a 2006 version, Hoggard is understandable and as for Murali, even panesar has the same number of sixes off him as Gilchrist

    Harbhajan and Saqlain are pretty comparable to Hoggard, I'd say. Harbhajan in Indian conditions in particular. Nel and Asif aren't poor bowlers either. Murali and Pollock obviously the pick of the bunch, though.

    edit: Pretty amazing that 17 of them have come off Vettori.

    Someone tell me how Hoggard is a better bowler than Kumble bowling in India.

    97?!? Crazy. Although KP will probably beat it eventually, 34 for him already.

    .........and if he was half as good a batsman as Gilly he would have played more Tests.

    50 sixes in 46 innings vs Gilly's 97 sixes in 127 innings. Afridi's sixes per inning ratio is far superior to Gilly's, but that obviously doesn't tell the whole story. Plus Afridi will never overtake Gilly as I don't think the former will play as much test cricket in his career.

    Personally, I don't see what the big deal is.

    It's test Cricket, much harder. And 2nd, the only thing Afridi looks to do is hit sixes. Gilchrist is a batsman, Afridi is a slogger.

    Looking at the list, i'm surprised how high up Flintoff is, knew he was England's highest but he has 76 so probably will be the next after Gilchrist to get to 100. Then there won't be anyone for a while(unless Lara carried on for a while(or even just has a couple of overs against Robin Peterson)), but KP already has 34 from 40 innings and we play a lot of test cricket so he might be a decent bet.
